AllMusic Review by

Four of the younger mainstream danceband merengue groups work out. This is the pop end of the spectrum, with singers more mellow than manic, and the band sound has gotten a little less manic than in the tearaway ‘80s and -- especially in the case of Benny Sadel -- subtler, with nifty jazz edgings. But the sax sections still have the old perico ripiao stomp, the arrangements are full of neat little felicities.
